Why all the pictures, you ask? Seeing that it is 2022, I figured a picture is worth a thousand words to describe my 2021. Like most all of you, COVID-19 was the dominate downer of the year, but I was blessed with the best of nature and family.

Tops on the good list was the day my daughter Camden, her husband Andrew, and my two grandchildren, Alice and Benjamin, moved to Bluffton from Charlottesville, Va.

Her reason for moving floored me. She simply wanted to be closer to me. Talk about being blessed, it was meant to be, especially when the house next door went up for sale and she bought it. 2021 had its low points but all those were nearly forgotten the day her family moved into their new place.

Here’s to peace, good health, and fabulous fishing in 2022!
